Get Involved

Community continues to make Affirmative Ventures a success story. More than 50% of the jobs we have secured for participants over the past 20 years have been thanks to partnerships with small businesses. The success of our social enterprises and on job training program is thanks to the support of individuals purchasing our products and services for their pets and homes. Our volunteer board continues to contribute many years of service in support of our mission.

Thank you to those who are involved. Our open invitation remains to "get involved" as a partner, a buyer, a donor, a volunteer or a sponsor.

Partner With Us

At Affirmative Ventures, we know that hiring can be a daunting task for any business; however, by working with our organization , we can provide the following:

  • Dedicated, reliable and long-term employees
  • Expertise in assuring a mutual fit between employer and employee
  • On-the-job coaching services to assist with new employee training
  • Continued job coaching and employee/employer support over the long-term
  • Reduced organizational training costs

We will work tirelessly to ensure the right fit is made between employers and our program participants.

Buy Our Products

Do you have a pet that is hungry or needs to be groomed? Drop by our store at 139 Main Street, Dartmouth or call us to place your order and one of our participants will help you choose from our high quality and competitively priced products. Every dollar spent supports our on job training program and our entrepreneurs.

Make A Donation

We work tirelessly every day to expand our housing models and provide enhanced employment training for the evolving business world. While we continually strive to be a self-sustainable enterprise, Affirmative Ventures project costs are currently shared through our revenue generating businesses, funding partners and government grants. The demand for our programs is outweighed by our current ability to grow.

To meet the requirements put forth by our community, we need private support from individuals like you, businesses and foundations.
